Air Con Re-Gas R134A
If your car air-con stops working it’s easy to say that you need an air-con re-gas
Air-Con gas R134a is the most common refrigerant used in vehicles as it is used in all vehicles made before 2014. A re-gas isn’t usually part of your annual vehicle service so if your vehicle is over 2 years old then a recharge is probably due.
Your air-con can keep you cool in the summer hot months, but remember that it can also keep you warm on those wintery days and help de-mist your windscreen at a faster rate. Keeping your air-con system in good condition gives you year-round comfort.
Questions and Answers
How do I know which air con gas I need for my vehicle?

How often shall I re-gas my air-con?
Manufacturers recommend that your vehicle’s air conditioning should be recharged with gas and lubricant every 2 years to keep it running effectively and efficiently. This service isn’t usually part of your annual vehicle service so if your vehicle is over 2 years old then a recharge is probably due.
